SAMFORD UNIVERSITY LIBRARY
THE year 1913 had a good beginning, for it was ushered
in with the coming of a wise and good man to become
the President of Howard College. He gave up his high
position among Southern Baptist ministers, together with all
his aspirations along the line of his chosen field for life-long
endeavor, and came to us, because he heard a call of duty that
was mandatory and saw the vision of Howard College at the
very foundation of all the Baptist interests in Alabama.
We have already learned that he is a man of action, find-
ing out what should be done and doing it, and having already
done his deeds before talking about them.
In token of our trust in him and our belief that in his
coming a new day has dawned for Howard College, we, the
Board of Editors of ENTRE-NOUS, '13, respectfully dedicate
this annual to

labors are over and our hearts are light. If you will greet Entre-Nous,

Alone I plodded through the forest path
In quiet dream,
While through the autumn leaves, upon the ground,
A gorgeous stream
Of moonlight flooded o'er me, and as I drank
From this great sea
Of mystic beauty rare, my soul was filled
Soft, sweet moonlight to whom my soul confides.
In raptures low,
The secrets of its love, and finds a friend
Who shares my woe!
I hope that when my corpse within the ground
Doth lie, and mine
Eternal spirit soars, that on that sirave,
Thou'll ever shine.

'TEADILY but surely we are climbing to the top. With "Up-
ward" as our motto, we have marched on from the very bottom
to the middle ground, and soon we will have reached the goal.
While our hearts have been set on literary achievements, yet in the other
departments of college activity our rank is recognized as being high. In
athletics, the Class of '15 has done its share. "The College Baby," and
others of our number, have successfully met the enemy on the football
field; and on the diamond we have forced the other classes to take notice;
while on the track, a number of '15 men have shown rare form.
So in every way, though the Profs, might except one, the year
' 1 2-' 1 3 has been a very successful one for us. Professor Dawson has
been successful in teaching us to address a gentleman as "Monsieur" and
a lady as "Madame," or "Mademoiselle," and other professors have been
gratified by accomplishments of equal importance. Encouraged by the
achievements of the past year and realizing our great strength, we stand
on the summit of "Know All Hill" and challenge the difficulties of Ju-

OUR Freshman and Sophomer years, filled with hard work and
heavy cares, have passed into history, and after a period of great
strife and tumult we have succeeded in breaking down the barriers
between us and the Land of the Juniors.
We have great joy in our work. We often think that "The most
manifest sign ot wisdom is cheerfulness," and especially do we think of
this on Monday mornings when lessons have not been prepared. But it
has been hinted that the Profs, arc hard to deceive about such matters,
even by cheerfulness.
As to what we have done, we have the honor of stating to you that
every member of our class passed the much-dreaded Mid-year Exams.
In athletics the Class of '14 has a splendid representation. In oratory —
well, even the Seniors envy us. Nor are we neglecting the social side of
life, for we believe that association with the "Fair Ones" has its part in
bringing about true culture. In all the activities of college life we have a
part and feel that it is our duty to do our best, and we cherish the hope
that some day we will reach that blissful land of the Seniors.
A Junior's Toast
Here's to the Freshman,
^ our hardships we know well.
You came to college
Fishing or know ledge,
But you will catch — well, well!
Here's to the Sophomore,
(Now we had better hush.)
Would make Minerva blush.
And, worthy Seniors.
Parting is truly sad.
The race once begun
With patience you've run,
And now the world is glad.
here's to you !

Father Time has awakened from slumher at last,
And has hewn for these years a wee niche in the past
All the joys and the fears he has safely enclosed
Where there's no escape from the doom he's imposed.
But mysterious memory holds regal sway,
And with Merlin's magical touch in a day,
She has veiled all the lights with a roseate hue,
And turned all the greys into lovliest blue.
But from all these memories is garnered one thought,
That 'tis only the good which a respite has caught
From the restless spirit of time in its flight,
And 'tis only the good that can last through the fight.
Now a future awaits us surpassingly fair,
And a life's to he woven with ceaseless care;
So the pattern we'll use for each work of our loom
In this purpose so lofty nil nisi bonum.

Senior Class Prophecy
ON a balmy night in April, having resisted the "Call of the Wild,"
and having nothing else to do, I tell into a deep slumber — for a
fact — and was promptly wafted into the blissful Land of Dreams.
' I w as a strange dream, for it seemed to me that lather Time had become
displeased with his accustomed pace and had skipped about ten years. It
seemed that I was on a vacation and had taken lodging at New York's
famous hostlery, the Waldorf-Astoria — my dream took on a more mystic
aspect. I awaked early in the morning — more strange — and after a light
breakfast, I took a seat in the lobby to think over plans for my vacation.
The first thought that came to my mind was that I should go in a south-
ward direction and that I should look up some of my old college friends.
The " Twentieth Century Limited" was due to leave the Terminal at 9:10
and a glance at my watch told me that I would have to hurry to catch this
On arrival at Chicago and in making preparations to catch the next
train for St. Louis, whom should I see but my old friend, Bill Blake. He
hadn't changed much since I saw him last — his hair had not lost its wavy
effect and he was still carrying his feet at a forty-five degree angle. From
our conversation I found that he had finished at Johns Hopkins several
years before and had started out on his medical career in Chicago, and
despite the vastness of the town and other complications, had worked up
a good practice.
St. Louis was a very attractive city and I decided to stop over for a
few days. During my rambles I met Hiram Gilmer on the streets. He
was on his way to lunch and I accepted his invitation to join him. 1 [e
told me that he had given up his idea of studying medicine, mainly because
he thought the clothes that doctors usually wore would not hang well on
him, and that he was now demonstrating the latest cuts in one of the large
clothing stores there.
Scarcely had I bid Gilmer farewell when I met Curtis Hasty. He
seemed to be in a great hurry. He was carrying a couple of heavy grips,
and had the appearance of a traveling salesman, which 1 found to be the
case. He was traveling out of St. Louis for Roberts, Johnson & Rand
Shoe Co. He was on his way to the L. & N. terminal to catch a train
and I went with him as far as Mount Vernon, 111., which town he was to
work that day.
At Nashville I found Tom Hand. He was now one of the best
dentists in Nashville. I spent several very pleasant days with him and his
Naturally my next stopping place was dear old Birmingham. It had
grown almost beyond my knowledge, but I could distinguish several fa-
miliar scenes. I found that the Baptist State Convention was in session
at the First Baptist Church, and I was sure that I would find several of
my old friends here. I soon ran up with Rev. James Franklin Isbell,
whom I used to call "Izzy." He said "Howdydooer" just as ever and
told me that he was ministering to a large flock at Browns Cross Roads.
Bill Rigell was there, too, and met me with a majestic stride, a beaming
countenance and a hearty handshake. I learned from Isbell that he was
one of the leading preachers in the State. While we were talking over
old times, Stivender came up. He was just as tall and slender as a tele-
graph pole. He, too, was preaching, and was pastor of a powerful
church in South Alabama.
We visited the College that afternoon, and I found that it had im-
proved greatly. "Cotton" Minis was now Professor of English, and
Hugh McCary had the Department of Chemistry.
On making inquiries about the whereabouts of Kingry, I found that
he had gone to China as a medical missionary and had made surgical
discoveries that were truly wonderful.
All these experiences were so very delightful that it was with reluc-
tance that I caught the northbound L. & N. the next morning and started

The Coming of Dr. Shelburne to Howard
M^fc-^HE coming of Dr. Shelburne is not as that of a stranger. On the
M Cj contrary, it was his service of nine years as pastor of the College
^^^^ church at East Lake, and his close touch with the college during
that time, that made him instantly and unanimously acceptable to the trus-
tees on the resignation of Dr. Montague in June of last year. It is
doubtful if any man better understood the needs of the college or if any
man outside the faculty was more conversant with its internal workings
and administrative and academic problems. It is not too much to say
that those who knew the college and knew Dr. Shelburne, unanimously
applauded the selection of the board of trustees.
The temper and bent of Dr. Shelburne's mind and the classical thor-
oughness of his education and scholarship had given him many honors
before he came to Alabama the first time; and those same qualities turned
to the needs of a pastorate in the great Birmingham District gave him
large and widely recognized success. Perhaps more significant even than
the respect that his literary and sermonic ability gained him from the dis-
criminating throughout the State, was the respect that came to him from
the business men of this district and from the leaders of the denomination,
when he discovered executive ability of rare order. The members of his
church had a way of saying, "Dr. Shelburne can get more people working
and get more work out of them than anybody else;" a leading merchant of
Birmingham said, prior to the selection of the Trustees, "The man they
want is Dr. Shelburne. He is the best business man I ever saw in the
pulpit." When it is added that the pastor of a down-town church re-
marked after Dr. Shelburne's election, "They have spoiled a mighty fine
preacher to make Howard a president," we seem to have summed up the
most significant indications for a forecast of Dr. Shelburne's administra-
The standard of scholarship is not to be lowered, but instead is to
be raised consistently and steadily, as in the past; and with that we are to
have a business administration with system and the greatest possible effici-
ency as the key words. The latest catalogue shows that the curriculum
has been raised considerably, that the elective system has been so widely
extended as to give options on thirty-two of the sixty-four points required
for graduation; and that the Academy of Howard is to be still further
enlarged and is to be made more prominent and efficient, until it shall be-
come a great preparatory school appealing to the whole district and State.
In the line of improvements on the campus will be the new gymnasium
and the installation of a central heating plant, both promised for the near
future. In the way ot extension work it is expected that next session will
see the development ot plans for a fully organized ami well-equipped
All who know Dr. Shelburne have learned his clear vision and his
ability to formulate policies, ami they have faith in his ability to carry
through his plans ami realize his visions.

Here's to the Howard boys
And the dear old Southern College,
A place to go to have the fun,
And gain just lots of knowledge.

Has been truthfully said,
For when the boys leave,
Old East Lake is dead.
The boys are all nice,
So manly and dear.
In the summer the girls miss their.
Dreadfully. I tear.
They're always doing things.
Especially that Senior Class.
I hate to say it, but I must,
It certainly beats the last.

About the other classes,
Hut don't think they care for much,
But to catch the little lasses.

Howard's 1912 Football Season
This year was the beginning of a new regime in Howard's Athletics,
as well as in the other departments of the College. Coach Xoojin has
started out to build up a system of athletics here that will insure us against
lack of material for our various teams.
At the beginning of this year, how-
ever, he had very poor material with
which to start up his system. Only
three of the last year's regulars came
back, and only one of these was of the
stellar variety. The remainder of the
team had to be picked from raw re-
cruits, some of whom had never even
seen a football game. And in addition
to this, our schedule was a rather
Coach Xoojin began early and did
his best to get the squad in the very
best shape possible, and he deserves
much credit for his persistent and
painstaking efforts. Most of the
games resulted in defeats for How-
ard, but it was not often that the op-
posing team had anything like a run-

lisdale, Kobinson, Lraines and
(iarner seemed to have the edge on
the other members of the team when it came to playing real football, but
the whole team deserves commendation tor its fighting spirit in the face
of heavy odds.
The Scrubs did splendid work all through the season and gave the
Varsity some hard scrimmages, as well as winning a majority of its own
scheduled games. Out of this squad, together with those of this year's
Varsity who return next year, Howard should have a formidable repre-
sentation on the i 9 [3 gridiron.

W^^-^HE baseball season of 19 13, with its fresh green grass and its
■ ** j budding leaves, will soon be upon us. Already the boys have
^^^^ responded to the call for candidates with a vim, and have begun
to try to persuade the coach of their ability by hard and persistent work in
the initial "try-out." Soon we shall hear mingled with the crack of the
bat and the sharp thud of the glove, those familiar strains, "Make 'im
pitch," "Spoil the good 'uns and let the bad 'uns go by," "Any way to git
on," and "Touch all the bags, Slick, touch all the bags."
The prospects for a winning team this year are exceedingly bright.
Of course, we know it is much easier to see a winning team on paper than
on the diamond, for the "dope" may not in every case bring all the ex-
pectations, but when a team has six of the best players return as a nucleus
for a new one, it is hard to "see" a losing team. The six "old" men are,
"Slick" Tisdale, captain-elect of the 1 9 1 3 squad and one of the best catch-
ers in Southern college baseball; Ab Moncrief, the lengthy twirler of last
year; "Rube" Motley, the phenomenal young twirler with much "stuff;"
"Red" Robinson, the best first basemen in the world; "Little Boy Blue"
Newman, outfielder; and "Spokane" Dunning, mighty wielder of the
For the first time in years, there are at least two good men fighting
for every position. The infield especially looms up strong, the candidates
being fast, energetic, and willing ball players. And the outfield is by no
means to be despised, as two of the "old" men are outfielders, while the
other candidates are fast, experienced men. A new man by the name of
Watters has recently come in to help Ab and Rube in the twirling depart-
ment, which makes matters in that direction look more promising.
Coupled with all this, we have one of the best coaches ever seen in
these parts, and taking a look at the whole outfit, we believe we have the
best pre-season prospects we have ever had. E. M. H., '10.

Start of Three-Mile Road Race
The Road Race
ON a chilly Saturday afternoon, December 22, 191 2, with the
wind blowing from the North at a lively rate, after having sub-
sisted on practically nothing but eggs (mostly raw) and toast, five
other long-distance runners and myself, viz.; Messrs. (Jallant, Acton
South, Rich, Newman, representing Howard College, were given a chance
to let out their pent-up energy along the streets of Birmingham for a
course of some three miles or more. Nor were we alone. Practically
titty other trained athletes from all over the South were competing in
this long-distance run, held annually under the auspices of the Birmingham
Despite the unfavorable weather, the eager onlookers, including
many of Birmingham's fairest maidens, thronged the streets all along
the way and cheered the fatigued run-
ners, encouraging them to do their
best, and the verandas of the houses
along the route were even crowded
with cheering people. Naturally, we
were thinly clad, and, as usual, the
photographers took their own good
time in getting our pictures at the start,
and at the crack of the pistol we were
indeed eager to warm ourselves up a
bit, thus causing a rather fast pace to be
set at the beginning. Motorcycle po-
licemen cleared the streets in front of
us, and officials and newspaper report-
ers kept apace of the leaders in auto-
The real competition in the race
came with us runners who were some-
what behind the three leaders, Pla-
towski, Beatty and Gallant, when the
sprint began three blocks from the finish. I knew that we as a team were
well up in the race, and, therefore resolved to let no one pass me from
this point on, although I was well winded and never in my life felt as if
a little rest would be so sweet. I stuck to my resolution with the exception
of letting Rich, a member of our own team, pass me. Had I known by
what a close score we were winning, I think I should have extended my
resolution a little and resolved to pass someone instead of merely holding
my own. Many of the runners were completely "blown" at the finish,
some having to be escorted from the course by their friends. Neverthe-
less, 'twas a GREAT day for HOWARD. We won something. Shortly
after the finish of the race, and after much argument on the part of the
judges and Coach Noojin, who closely kept up with the race and how each
man finished, we were awarded the team prize, a handsome silver loving

While football, baseball and track are being duly emphasized, we
must not overlook tennis. Not all our athletic talent can be claimed by
the other teams. We have lots of men who for lack of time, physical
build, etc.. decline the heavier sports, but are shining stars in tennis.
On the campus are four excellent courts, and still others are in prog-
ress of building. These courts are owned by the different fraternities and
While we did not have scheduled games this season, we hope next year
to tackle some of the leading colleges of the State. Our Athletic Asso-
ciation, seeing our opportunity and demand to push tennis, is putting forth
efforts to arrange a good schedule. We are planning also to emphasize
class and club contests in the College.
Among the tennis "bright lights" are Duke. Rigell. Harris. Newnan,
Robinson and Hand. Other players of ability are Ford. Leftn ich. Parker,
Davie. Dunsmore. Kingry. Hasty and Stivender.
General interest in the game is growing, and we hope to make it a
favorite sport in the college and give it the place it really deserves in our
J. C. Si l\ :• ntdi R — ' : j
Plans are now on foot for the erection of a spacious and handsome
gymnasium, to he placed opposite the athletic field. The need of a well-
equipped "gym" has heen long felt at Howard, and the het is about ten
to one that next September, when the boys begin to come in, they will see
this structure well on its way to completion.

INCE the years 1847 an< ^ 1858 there have been connected with
Howard College ^wo literary societies, known as the Philomathic
and Franklin, respectively.
In order to induce men to take up oratory early in their college career,
each society gives a New Man's Medal to the winner in a contest com-
posed of four men, who have been selected from a preliminary contest.
Each year during the months of February and April, the societies
hold their anniversary meetings, at which time interesting programs are
rendered. There is also an annual Intersociety Debate, each society being
represented by two debaters.
Both societies have sent out many men well equipped for service.
They have come to the societies with trembling knees and stammering
voices, and have acquired ease and eloquence on the stage before leaving.
Among these there are some of the most prominent men in their chosen
line of endeavor: In the ministry, such men as Dr. J. B. Hawthorne, Dr.
J. R. Sampey, Dr. Hale of Louisville, Ky. In the medical profession,
Dr. J. \V. Bell, of New York; Dr. J. D. Heacock, of Birmingham; Dr.
E. P. Hogan, President of Birmingham Medical College; Dr. YV. M.
YVilkerson, of Montgomery. As educators, Dr. D. S. Lyons, Professor
of Semetic Languages in Harvard University and H. J. Willingham, State
Superintendent of Education.
Alabama Intercollegiate Oratorical
, S^^-^ I [E Alabama Intercollegiate Oratorical Association was organized
f ^ J in the fall of 1902, through the efforts of Dr. W. S. Cox, founder
^^^^ of Cox College, College Park, Ga. Delegates from Alabama
Polytechnic Institute, Southern University and Howard College met in
Montgomery and effected the organization, the purpose of which is to
develop a friendly rivalry between the colleges in the cultivation of oratory.
Under this organization a contest is held annually, each institution
having a representative. A handsome gold medal, donated by Dr. Cox,
is awarded the winner.
The first contest was held in Montgomery in the spring of 1903, and
Howard was represented by P. C. Barkley. The next year Howard was
the host of the speakers, the contest being held in the college auditorium.
This time J. O. Colley spoke for Howard. The following year found the
speakers contesting in the auditorium of the Southern University at Greens-
boro, and Howard's representative was F. M. Payne. Then the A. P. i.
at Auburn entertained the orators, and her auditorium was the scene of
the contest. In this contest W. A. Jenkins represented Howard. Again
the contest came to Birmingham, and was held in the High-School Audi-
torium, and J. A. Cook won the medal for Howard. He added yet an-
other victory for his Alma Mater by winning the Southern contest at Mont
Eagle, Tenn. For the next three years Selma had the contest and much
interest was manifested on these occasions by our sisters at Judson. J. A.
Prescott was the first speaker to represent Howard at Selma, being fol-
lowed by M. E. Nettles, winner, and H. G. Grant. The next year the
contest came back to the High-School auditorium at Birmingham. Here
R. K. Hood spoke for Howard. The contest then went to Montgomery,
with I . W. Smyly for Howard. At the meeting o\ the Association at this
time, Birmingham College was admitted to the Association. The battle
ground of the contest will be in Birmingham this year, with W. C. Blake
as representative for Howard.

In Lighter Vein
Principles upon which the Joke Editors have worked
Truth is the mother of joy.
Truth cultivates, ennobles, purifies.
Criticism is a friend to success.
A good laugh is worth a hundred groans.
If you dance you must pay the fiddler.
What you sow, that must you also reap.
Lives of students oft remind us,
We can ride on ponies lean,
And departing leave behind us,
Footsteps few and far between.

AN IRISH FAIRY TALE
By Nan G. Walshe
Pat O'Hara was the pride of the country side. As we say over in
Ireland, he was "a broth of a boy." Tall and strong, with bewitching
grey eyes and dark close-cropped brown hair, a hearty laugh and a heart-
breaking smile, Pat had what we of the Emerald Isle call "a way with him,"
and with his kindly words and sparkling wit he installed himself as the pride
and joy of every heart in the parish of Gleneven. Old and young, grave
and gay — Pat was a favorite with all of them, and many a whispered
"God bless you" came from the lips of the old folks, and many a sigh
went up from the hearts of the fair colleens, as they watched Pat shoulder
his pitchfork or rake and go to the fields, or saunter down the village
street with his beloved fiddle under his arm. Pat was indeed the pride of
the parish. Never a fair was complete without him, and the dances at
the crossroads in the moonlight fell dull and flat if Pat's hearty laugh
did not ring out, if his witty sayings were not heard; above all, if the
sweet strains from Pat's violin did not fill the night air with music and
joy and happiness.

Therein lies the reason for Pat's popularity. He could play the
violin like an angel, and when he put his whole soul into the work and
drew forth from the strings the sad, plaintive tones of the songs and la-
ments of his native land, he could, as the old cronies of the parish said,
"draw tears from a stone;" and who would expect the feet of the light-
hearted maidens and youths of Erin to remain still when Pat chose to
set them going with his airy jigs and reels and whirling melodies. But
once upon a time, as the children say, Pat had a very remarkable experi-
ence, which even heightened his popularity and made him more sought
after than ever, hut which nearly cost him his life.
The day was at last drawing to a close and one by one the people
rode, drove or walked away, some in their carts, some in their Irish
jaunting cars, ami others who lived not tar from the town, walking home
in happy laughing groups.

Pat was almost the last one to leave Carrickross. He had so many
friends that he had a hard time tearing himself away and, as, by the end
of the day, Pat was feeling in rather good spirits, he did not realize how
time, which waits for no man, was fleeing, and already night had come
clown on the weary world.
Finally Pat had his "wee deoch and durrish" (last drink, at the door),
and with his beloved instrument under his arm, he started on the way to
Gleneven. He had no difficulty in finding the road, though he seemed to
have some little difficulty in keeping to one side of it. The gentle moon
shone overhead, and thousands of twinkling stars shone round her like
myriads of fairy lamps lighting her on her way. A soft breeze sighed
through the trees that lined the road on either side, and tanning the
heated temples of the young fiddler, they cooled his hot brow and helped
him to regain his senses, which he had never completely lost.
Pat had worked hard all day, fiddling tor the young people, and
dancing with the pretty colleens now and then, when some less competent
player took his place for a little while. Now he was tired, and even as
he walked along his weary eyelids grew heavy with sleep, and it required

the utmost effort for him to drag his feet from step to step. Nature,
at length, demanded rest and restoration of energy, and when Pat came
to the Gurth-na-ree crossroads, he gently laid aside his fiddle and, throw-
ing himself on the green bank by the roadside, he soon went fast asleep.
What was that exquisite sound he heard? Whence came that beauti-
ful harmony that struck upon his ears? Had he died and was this the
heavenly choir to which he was listening? What earthly fiddler could draw
such soft, sweet tones from a violin?
Slowly Pat came back to consciousness, and to his brain came the
confusion of ideas brought by the exquisite music of a violin, played, he
knew not where nor by whom. Fearful of disturbing and so bringing the
concert to a close, Pat moved slowly and quietly till he at least reached a
sitting posture. Then, and not until then, did the idea dawn upon his
( ontinued on page [55)
"Sure, it's the good people (fairies) I'm hearing. 'Tis the fairy
music I'm after listening to," said Pat to himself. "Sure it's lucky I am
entirely, to have such a chance to hear the 'ceoil shee' (fairy music)."
Entranced with the sounds, Pat sat there listening, drinking in the
soft, sweet music made by the fairy fiddler, and storing away in his
brain the fairy melody; with his anxiety to try it allayed only by the fear
of disturbing the "good people" and destroying the pleasure of their
On and on they danced, in and out and round about, and still they
played and laughed and sang in all their fairy beauty and loveliness.
Utterly bewitched by the scene, Pat sat on as in a dream, watching the little
green patch in the middle of the crossroads, which served as the fairies'
pleasure-ground, ball-room and concert-hall all in one.
Just as the light of the dawning day appeared in the east, gaily the
little fairies danced off to their homes in the hearts of the flowers, and the
last strains of the soul-bewitching melody died away on the morning
breeze. The fairies sleep in the swaying flowers, through the glaring
light of day to refresh themselves for the nightly gambols of the midnight

Chained by pleasureable wonder, Pat stayed rooted to the spot for
some minutes, then with a happy cry he eagerly snatched up his violin and
began to play the fairy music. Slowly and with faltering tone it came at
first, but he played it again and again, until at last the soft, sweet tones
of the fairy melody floated out, and Pat was a happy boy.
Yes, Pat was happy as long as he was satisfied with playing the
first part of the tune. But he was so charmed with his success that he
must needs have all the melody. In vain he tried to play the second
part. Always the cunning intervals eluded him, and he could not master
it. For a time, however, he rested content with the first part of the beauti-
ful fairy melody, and people who had heretofore been charmed with Pat's
playing, were fairly enchanted with his music now. The young people
praised and applauded and skipped and danced when Pat played f ''''
"ceoil shee." But the old folks sighed and shook their heads, and
whispered to each other that no good would come of it.
"The 'good people' won't be liking it at all, at all," said the old
women among themselves, and the old men would say to each other sadly,
"Sure it's a great pity entirely that such a fine gossoon should be so taken
up with the fairy music."
It was a great pity indeed, for Pat gave up everything to the one
desire he now had — to play the second part of the fairy tune. Night,
noon, and morning, he sat and played and played, but always at the same

point in the melody all memory <>t the second part of the tune would fade
from his mind, and all his attempts to recall it were in vain.
Then Pat gave way to despair. Slowly, hut surely, his health began
to tail, and the once strong and stalwart man became a thin, emaciated
wreck of humanity, and the people's hearts grew sad, for Pat no longer
played the sad songs, or the merry lilting jigs and reels of his native land.
Day in and day out he played only the fairy tune, forever trying to recall
the second part of the melody he had heard on the night of the Carrick-
ross fair. The wise old folks slowly wagged their heads and said "It is
the curse of the fairies coming on him. He is going away in a decline.
The fairies have put it on him because he tried to learn their music."
And so everyone in Gleneven believed, and nothing but pity and sympathy
were felt for Pat, once the pride and joy of the parish, now a worn-out
specimen ot humanity.
Pat could stand it no longer. He would go once more and hear the
fairy music, though he knew that the good people did not like the mortals
to interfere with their revels.

Because the business world indorses our work.
Because nearly every Bank and Railway Office in the City bears testimony
to the success of our pupils.
Because we have good things to teach and know how to teach them.
Because over 500 positions have been rilled with our pupils during the
past two years.
Because SPENCERIAN SHORTHAND has no equal.
Because many young people have, after a few weeks study of our system
of Shorthand and Bookkeeping, risen from $4.00 to $5.00 weekly salary
to positions at $40.00 to $175.00 per month.

That very night saw Pat at Gurth-na-ree waiting for the fairy festival
to begin. On the stroke of midnight they came dancing from their flower-
homes, singing, laughing and capering over the green grass. Once more
Pat's heart bounded as he listened again to the exquisite strains that had
captured his fancy. Anxious to impress the tune on his memory, Pat
went nearer and nearer, till he found himself in the middle of the fairy
ring. He was seized with a mortal dread, lest the "good people" would
be angry with him and do him some deadly harm. But lo ! and behold!
they kept on dancing and singing around him for some time, until Pat was
astonished and bewildered.
Suddenly the dancing ceased, the fairies begged Pat to sit down
while they talked with him. Down he sat, and the fairies clambered all
over him, as the little fairy fiddler began speaking. "Pat O'Hara," he
said, "sure, you're a fine fiddler, but you can't be playing the ceoil shee.
You'll be after stopping it now, if you please, and if you do you will soon
be well and strong again." "Sure I'd rather die than give up my fairy
tune," cried Pat, "but I can't remember the whole of it." "Well, listen
to me, Pat O'Hara," said the fairy fiddler, "if you will promise not to
try to remember any more, we will give you leave to play what you now
know — and you're the first mortal that ever did it. You may play the
first part, for you play it well, but you never will remember the second
part. Go now and come back no more."
Pat was tired, sad and disappointed, but he was thankful to the fairies
for letting him play part of the "ceoil shee," and he gave up trying to re-
member the rest. Soon he grew well and strong again, his happy laugh
rang out through the country side, his ready wit once more made fun
for others, the fiddle once more gave forth the jigs and reels for the young
folks, but Pat always loved the fairy tune, and ever afterward he was
called Pat the Fairy Fiddler.
